    • It's interesting how a few years can really change one's perspective. That's why I've always been open to revisiting many topics - even if they've already been discussed.

      Oh man! That feels like ages ago! I had forgotten that blog even existed. That was a bit less than three years ago; can't believe in two months I'll have been here for four years now. Wow.

    • Agreed. When you read back over your comments in previous forums and completely disagree with what you said, or realise that your argument was just complete rubbish. Shows why its stupid to be so stubbornly rooted to your opinion you don't consider the other side.

      Thought you'd like that ;)

    • I will continue looking and if I can't find anything I will ask Tono, Thailog, and/or Kettle if they have any ideas; but I guess if portability was just restricted to infoboxes it might be outside the scope of what Vanguard does.

      The family tree code is a pain to work with, but it would be nice to get it working (at least a bit) on mobile.

    • Chances are that it's outside the scope of Vanguard, but on the other hand, if anyone would have any inside knowledge about whether or not there are plans for the other templates, it would be a Vanguard member :-)

  • sorry for bothering mate.As a chinese speaker ,some english expression really strikes me.Could you give me some other exsamples like the line "I did get to meet you"

    And does the "get to" mean have to?

    thank you so much

    • As an example, suppose you are planning to get a train, but it is cancelled and you have to get the next one instead. You then meet someone on the station whilst waiting (whom you wouldn't have met had the train been running), strike up a conservation with them, and the two of you become friends. You might then say that, whilst your train being cancelled was bad for you, it wasn't so bad since you got to meet the new person, and ultimately became friends. Essentially, the phrase means that something bad (missing the train, or getting stuck in the iceberg as with Aang) led to something good (making a new friend, meeting Katara).

      In this context, it doesn't mean "have to" rather "got the chance to", i.e. "though something bad happened, i did get the chance to meet you as a result of that".

      Does that help?

    • thank you so so much,I really  really appreciate for your help.Speaking of this comic,though i donnt have a better translation,but i still donnt like the translation,air bender,for "气宗”(sorry if you cannt see chinese charactor)

      "气”(pronounces chi in english i think) is not actul air nor some kind of gas.It's energy.Say someone is bending air,he is actully give off his energy,not bending air,but using air to attack the enemy.So I'd prefer chi master than air bender.thank you again.

  • I'm trying to change my userinfobox image to an image I found that's on deviantart, but you can't use linked images on deviantart on Avatar Wiki, only tumblr and Photobucket. How can I do this without it messing up?

    Here's a link to the image: arcane_background__bg__pony_pack_by_sierraex-d4kxciy.png (1191×670)

  • Hey HoT, as part of the Standards Council, I'd like to point your attention to the B-class nomination I made for "Korra Alone".

  • (The point of it being subjective is that Hundun does not have "good ideals", however one defines that; thus a source is needed to justify this point)

    Do you not remember Toph explicitly saying the theme among Korra's enemies was that they "had good ideals, but were out of balance"? Hundun & Vaatu were not mentioned.

    Complaining that "it's subjective" is pointless, because it's the opinion of the writers, not me.

    • As Hundun is a video game only character, his exclusion there does not mean anything, and thus one cannot make that conclusion as to the opinion of the writers. Therefore, without a source to justify the statement that Hundun did not have good ideals, that statement is subjective.

    • The Wiki otherwise operates on the premise that the game is canon, otherwise this wouldn't make any sense either:

      Hundun is the second leader of the Equalists after Amon; interestingly enough, both men were benders.

      If the events in the videogame are not continuous with the show, there was only 1 leader of the Equalists.

      Also, whether or not he was omitted because he's a videogame character, doesn't change the fact that he was omitted from the theme, which is what I said.

    • I don't and have never contested that he is canon; where I disagree is that, as a video game exclusive character, that he was not mentioned in that episode cannot be taken as intentional exclusion, and thus we cannot take Toph's lack of statement on him as a source.

      Neo Bahamut wrote: Also, whether or not he was omitted because he's a videogame character, doesn't change the fact that he was omitted from the theme, which is what I said.

      I don't believe that is an objective point, and that was always my main point about it being subjective. One could argue that his ideals were good (revenge against the Avatar for what happened to his brother), just as someone else could argue they were bad. Since we have nothing official to state either way (as I do not believe Toph's statement is evidence or anything in this situation), standard practice is to not state it either way (i.e. we don't state he does follow the theme, nor that he doesn't).

        Loading editor
    • If there's nothing tying him to the theme, then he's excluded from the theme. Proof by definition. Exclusion by failure to reference is still exclusion. How someone would choose to argue his actions is indeed subjective, which is why the only point I made is that they're similar to Vaatu's. If you have to keep going to something I didn't say to show how I'm "being subjective," that should tell you something, but if experience holds true, that's going to come up again very shortly.

      Vaatu is rather more explicably referred to as evil, but I'm sure that's also meaningless.

      With that said, do what you want, I'd forgotten I was avoiding editing anyway, but this jogs my memory as to why.

  • I see my eclipse glasses trivia was removed from the astronomy page. Where should this info go? The eclipse glasses page? Is it considered more as a goof than trivia?

    Real eclipse glasses do not work in the way they're portrayed in the show so I want to clarify that point. Wearing glasses during an eclipse is pointless since the sun is blocked and you'll miss the beauty of the eclipse itself. You wear them before/after, not during.

    Thanks!
